Tumble turns in the pool

During the off season we spend time in the pool working on some of the basics the athletes will require to help develop their swimming and this winter has been no different. We’ve had a big focus on the kick for our Youth and Junior elite athletes which has paid dividends with improvements in all kick TT’s and now we new moving the main focus to turns.

As we have athletes that are still competing in gala’s and all Performance Assessments in the pool we work hard to ensure the basics of turns and the start are as good as they can be as this will save them seconds over a 400m and more over 800m.

Still some work to do for some athletes but with a big effort over the next month or so should see some good improvements and even faster times.
